they were honored at fenway park and mentioned by president obama earlier this week. >> to watch it and to feel it and people finding their legs. we want to begin with the investigation into the boston marathon bombings. we're getting a new look at the final moments before the suspected bomber was captured. infrared video shows them moving inside the boat. a little later an explosion of a flash grenade is seen going off before agents took him into custody. federal charges could be filed against him as soon as today. now our national investigative correspondent michael isikoff continues to cover the story from boston. he is standing by now with the very latest. michael, good morning. good to see you. >> we could be learning a lot more about the boston marathon bombing when federal prosecutors file those criminal charges possibly as early as this morning, laying out some of the government's evidence against the surviving 19-year-old suspe. but, meanwhile, questions are mounting about how much the fbi knew before the bombing about his older brother, and alleged accomplice and whethe

you think, why you think this and they say they never got a response. >> the obama administration has okayed the suspension of the suspect's miranda rights. is that a temporary suspension? >> reporter: yes, by law it is. it's called the public safety exception to the miranda rule. normally you have to tell someone they have a right to remain silent and if you don't, then you can't use anything they tell you in court. so that's why the miranda warning is given. but there is an exception. you don't have to do it if there's a possible threat to public safety. and here obviously there's a concern about whether there are potential accomplices. investigators say they haven't found any. or other explosives. they say they haven't found any of those either but that's what they want to ask him. and this exception probably begins to expire the moment you invoke it so it's probably no good for more than a day or two but nonetheless they can do that. afterwards they'll have to give him his miranda warning and say whether he'll continue to answer questions. the justice department says even in very
phase of the case begins. the very complex legal process. an obama administration official telling nbc news tsarnaev will not be given a miranda warning when he's physically able to be interrogated after receiving medical treatment. instead, the official says the government will invoke a legal rule known as the public safety exception. that will allow investigators to question tsarnaev without first advising him of his right to remain silent and be afforded legal counsel. president obama used his weekly address today to praise law enforcement and those involved in tracking tsarnaev down. >> americans refused to be terrorized. ultimately, that's what we'll remember from this week. that's what will remain, the stories of heroism and kindness, resolve and resilience, generosity, and love. >> authorities caught up with the suspect after a tip from a watertown resident. he was hiding in a boat parked outside a home. he is now in a boston hospital and nbc's ron allen is joining me from there. ron, with a good afternoon to you, let's get the very latest on his condition. are you getting word

. >> reporter: on the national level, the shame on the senate call from president obama, my question is did the democrats did they throw in the towel too early on gun ban. >> absolutely. there is no way in the world they should have allowed the process of the so called don't continue to talk when you get into the filibuster, it's a don't continue to talk. the democrats should have wanted a continuation of conversation even until this day on this issue. they have only benefited from an expensive dialogue on gun control in this country. >> call these guys out. >> absolutely. call them. >> reporter: would that have worked in the public ranks or would they have had a split. >> the democrats that voted against it from states where 55% of the citizens own guns and they're up for reelection. people who gun activists are passionate about the issue. people who are not gun activists, they'll vote for someone who isn't on their side. >> there are only about 5 state as, north dakota, west virginia, arkansas. >> reporter: my question would be does harry reid and the president need their vote for other i
monday. and that was the united states, president putin, president obama decided to step back and reset, again, the u.s./russian relationship. it had been in a spiral over the adoptions, over human rights, over each country barring visitors, and that was a relationship in trouble. on the day of the marathon, they agreed to, no, we're going to meet and we're going to upgrade relations. i think we're lucky on the timing of this. i expect, as part of a broader warming with u.s./russian relations, that we will get more cooperation, certainly more cooperation than we would have gotten a month ago. >> all right. lou, i want to go back to you and talk about the acting alone part. in the new york area, you know, after 9/11, had lots of experience with this. just looking -- i know you're not investigating this particular case, but judging from the outside, in, do you think these brothers acted alone in do you think there could have been another co-conspirator, so to speak? >> you know, to me, don, circumstances including the travel dictate the likelihood that they received some support, probably
thoughts on that? >> i don't think that that's going to happen. the obama administration has been clear, they're distancing themselves from that concept. you've got an american citizen. we don't have dzhokhar going abroad in training. his brother apparently did. but dzhokhar didn't. and dzhokhar is going to be tried as an individual on his own right. so i think the chances of this ending up as an enemy combatant are very small. >> but you've heard that because of high security concerns they would like to question him for a period of time, albeit briefly, before mirandizing him and reading him his rights. how long can they do that? how far can they go with those questions? >> well, that's a very good question. because the longer we go, the less likely there is that there's a public security issue here. one thing that the defense will certainly raise is the remarks of the police chief of watertown in which he said these are the only two guys, we're done. now the argument from the government will be well, he wasn't informed. but, you know, that's going to be played out pretty significantly
involvement in setting the interest of the letters to president obama and senator roger wicker as well as one to a mississippi judge. curtis is in detention and preliminary hearing began on friday and continues today. >> investigators and taxes have not determined a cause of the explosion that killed 14 people including 10 first responders and a fertilizer plant in west texas. investigators say they pinpointed where the blast originated. the mpeg damaged or destroyed dozens of homes and businesses leaving hundreds of people homeless and in need of help. authorities have also released 91 tapes that captured the initial panic after the fire and massive blast. >> there was some type of explosion and our house, all of the windows are completely blocked and. the walls, part of it is blown off. >>, down and take a deep breath. we are aware of the situation and we are sending people out there as soon as we can. >> city leaders allowed some residents to return to their homes are the weekend but they still face strict curfews. fire officials will hold a memorial service at baylor university on thursda
system of justice. >> i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to rule out enemy combatant status for this suspect. >> reporter: and the question of whether the fbi dropped the ball in 2011 when it looked at tamerlan tsarnaev's activity will be the subject of a closed-door briefing on capitol hill later today, when law enforcement officials brief lawmakers. john? >> all right, barbara starr, thanks so much. barbara starr in washington. i want to bring back fran townsend, cnn analyst, former homeland security adviser to president george w. bush. and fran, i want to get your take here. where do you think the investigation stands right now? we've had these initial criminal complaints given dzhokhar tsarnaev. we've seen sort of the case laid out just a little bit. but how about the investigation itself? what are the next steps? >> well, first of all, we know from investigators that they're cooperating with the russians. i talked to sources, federal sources, and the cooperation between russian authorities and the fbi is quite good. both want to understand what they mig
as opposed to within the criminal justice system, which seems to be what the obama administration will do. after all, he is a u.s. citizen. he carried out the crime on u.s. soil. and there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of legal basis to try him as enemy combatant, which is not to say there aren't going to be more calls particularly from the right to do just that. >> when in theory you have so much evidence on american soil, why tarnish the prosecution by going enemy combatant. if you have no backlash from anybody who says you didn't do it the right way. >> he stole a suspect. but clearly -- you've got to walk through the process, right? >> i was thinking this weekend, again, and i'm speculating, you read the articles. we know now he ran after his own brother. you know what the defense is going to be. i was brainwashed by my brother. i ran over him to get away. >> the older brother, basically was even asked to leave his own mosque because his anti-american views were so strong that the islamic community in cambridge was outraged. >> if they saw this happen, raise this question and raise h
obama and the first lady, we saw the governor, the mayor, huge venue for that interfaith service last thursday. we'll play that for you. and we will stop talking and pause to reflect. we promise to do that. i want to take you live to deb feyerick, who has been going over some of the details in the charges, reading through the criminal complaint. and, deb, talking about this earlier, the charges don't include that m.i.t. police officer shot and killed. >> correct. that's exactly right. you know, this criminal complaint really -- this is -- i've seen this happen before, this criminal complaint is roughly, let's see, this is ten pages long. when the final -- when the actual indictment comes out, chances are it will be many times larger than this. usually, you know, the indictments we get are anywhere between 40, 50, 60 pages, it all depends. this is what they have got so far. this is enough for them to hold this man in the hospital, as they continue to investigate. there is a lot of evidence out there, and very interesting, earlier you showed a picture of a group of people that are aroun
